Hello and Good Morning,

It is in the spirit of human templating that I apply to this auspicious position. As a living, breathing, sniffing and often gesticulating example of humanity I hereby project myself into the light of Stacker News. Not too far into the light so as to become garish or appear egotistical, but just enough to suggest the forthrightness and certitude of an exemplary citizen. As per the requirements of said position, I am by all means a tall sitter. I refrain from standing at all costs, mostly to maintain modesty with regard to my height. I find other office constituents somewhat lacking in their hauteur and making them feel at ease is paramount in projecting exemplary behaviour. I see the remaining requirements as clearly obvious and don't plan to address them, for the simple reason that I am truly over-qualified in each and every category - especially the "shhhhhhhhhhhushing", which I notice you mis-spelt and should have one more "s"! Addressing qualifications, it is essential to realize that I have integrated the meritocratic regret, upholstery and digit requirements. (Note: I think the toe and finger stipulation is well and truly a requirement and not a qualification but in the spirit of acquiescence (another qualification: "You don't need to be told what to do but love being told what to do") i intend to group them accordingly). Last year, whilst languishing in a middle class suburban prison, as prescribed by the WEF, I undertook an apprenticeship in upholstery. As our little shoe box only contains one chair, and a meager dog-eaten sofa, my range of projects quickly came to abrupt end - until I gazed one wintry afternoon at my inadequate collection of fingers and toes. Needless to say, I typed this post within seconds and am simultaneously paying my Vietnamese pedicurist an exorbitant sum to have those little piggies look their best for this application! As an exemplar, I am altruistic and as you'd expect am adverse to trivial compensation, as tempting as your generously extensive list appears. However, I must reveal my life-long wish to work from within a garage, surrounded by copious boxes of readily available Ivermectin. I cannot think of a more forthrightly virtuous pursuit. I look forward to your response but in the meantime I have pencils to sharpen.

Too try hard :)

A have a phd in regret! I have a dog that loves i in?

If the phd was from an unaccredited online university, you can start Monday. Please bring your dog, we have a lot of ham

Yes im free on Monday..Could my dog invite his 4 friends to eat hams?

Your dog has too many friends. You’re fired.

So close and.....gone. And that is why it's best to know when to shush :)

I have 7 fingers and will have watched this video tonight.

Question. Will you reimburse me for the wax and cassette tape?

Edit: Oh gawd, I hope I get this job.

7 fingers is good. I’ll reimburse you in topo chicos. When can you start?

Depends. Cherry Akai or Strawberry Guava? If Akai, next Tuesday. But for only Guava, I will have to give more notice to my current employer.

Edit: Full disclosure, 1 of the seven is a thumb. Does that still count? I'm working on growing the other back. But it's going worse than expected.

I only have access to lime through my coworking space. That’s my final offer.

Thumbs count. They’re the most important finger according to our chief finger officer.

The real man!

Ha ha :)

How do I post a job?

10 sats \ 0 replies \ @kr 3 Mar

When you visit the 'jobs' page, the 'post' menu item changes from being a button for posting normal posts to posting jobs. Lots of room for UX improvements.

Clearly SN needs to be more ASCII art optimized.

When can I start?

Can you start in 1985? We needed this done yesterday. Pls thx ...

I love ascii art! Most of my cli commands on would return a tarot themed piece of ascii art.

I would assume the party that posted this listing will want to know that I asked a question. How will that party know that I asked this question unless they are manually monitoring this site?

They get notified like any comment on other posts. I guess they could hit it and quit it. Maybe we should have email notifications or something

Yes, e-mail notifications.

An HR person or recruiter who posts a job listing isn't going to be sitting on SN all day like us degens.

can you pay me in HEX ?

Hexane gas? Yes
